Here it is...Instead of Thompson Classic offering a prize after the voting, this year I'm offering this:

The first bikes to cross the Finish Line in Cat 1 and 2 get a set of Ball End Grips. You pick the color: black, white, red, antique white, green, orange, dark grey.

Now GTB!

Ah ok. So then Swiss Guy wins the Class 2 prize, it looks (I think that's a Class 2 bike). He can relax and eat a sammich now.

That’s a great motivator, and generous. Unfortunately I haven’t even inventoried my parts yet. Turtle build I guess. How about a reward for last to finish? Ha, ha.

Thanks everybody, and congrats to @OddJob and @SwissGuy for winning the Build Off Speed Round.

I'll be mailing your grips color of choice asap.

That was fun.

Krp, finished! I protest, they must have assistants. Can you send them my way? I need someone to dig through my junk, find the parts I need, determine what I don’t have and panhandle at the nearest round about for funds for the missing parts.
 
I don't really understand why we're giving out prizes for the first person done. Don't non-procrastinators already have enough advantages in life?
Believe me, I'm really surprised having my bike done this fast. Usually I'm right at the deadline or even DNF... In fact I have about as many unfinished bikes as finished ones... :grin:
